“The Very Difficult to See to you, bhikkhus, I shall teach,
and the path to the Very Difficult to See…
And what is the Very Difficult to See?
The destruction of lust, the destruction of hatred, the destruction of delusion.”
~ Samyutta Nikaya IV.IX.ii7 “Sududdasam Suttam” (Very Difficult to See Sutta)
“And what, bhikkhus,
is the Noble Truth of the Cessation of Suffering?
(1) With ignorance’s remainderless fading away and cessation, formation ceases;
(2) With formation’s ceases, consciousness ceases;
(3) With consciousness’s ceases, mind-matter ceases;
(4) With mind-matter’s ceases, the six bases cease;
(5) With the six bases’ ceases, contact ceases;
(6) With contact’s cessation, sensation ceases;
(7) With sensation’s cessation, craving ceases;
(8) With craving’s cessation, clinging ceases;
(9) With clinging’s cessation, coming-into-existence ceases;
(10) With the cessation of coming-into-existence, birth ceases;
(11) With birth’s cessation,
(12) ageing & death, sorrow, lamentation, pain, grief and despair cease.
Such is the cessation of this whole mass of suffering.
This is called, bhikkhus, the Noble Truth of the Cessation of Suffering.
